Our History:

Launched on September 13, 1996, disinformation was designed to be the search service of choice for individuals looking for information on current affairs, politics, strange science and “hidden information” that seldom slips through the cracks of corporate-owned media. Ironically, it was funded by one of the largest media companies in the world (TeleCommunications, Inc. now part of Comcast), who paid for placement on Netscape’s then ubiquitous search page.

The site drew immediate attention and (usually) applause from the very same news media that it was criticizing as being under the influence of both government and big business, but the honeymoon was short. Some three weeks after launch the CEO of TCI learned of disinformation and immediately ordered it closed down. Needless to say, the founding team managed to keep the site going and it evolved into one of the most popular alternative news and underground culture destinations on the web. At the height of the dot-com boom The Disinformation Company was acquired by one of the high fliers of the so-called new economy, Razorfish — when the bubble burst so did Razorfish and today The Disinformation Company is independently owned.

While many of our projects are seemingly ‘progressive’ we do not close our minds to ideas that are called ‘conservative’ — far from it. How can someone be truly well informed with only half the story? In the years since the site was launched in 1996 it has gone through several design and editorial changes, evolving from a specialized web-search directory to the current format of a community-based news and content service.

We welcome your participation and feedback, and of course encourage you to load up on disinformation goodies in our store.
